I always said that fatherhood has changed me for the better in so many ways. As a father of 2 girls, I’ve also had to learn a lot of things over the years. As my oldest daughter becomes older and starts going through puberty, I knew things were going to change fast. I have always tried to be the father and friend; my kids feel comfortable talking to about anything, even those uncomfortable situations.
The other week on twitter I noticed a new follower. I always check out my new followers and try to learn more about them and build friendships. To me I am all about quality over quantity when it comes to twitter and fb. I was very interested when I see that it was actually a company called Period packs. After going to the company site I was impressed with the products and message they are promoting. Period Packs is a company that specializes in helping young ladies to womanhood by providing her with essentials to help a young lady to better be prepared for her monthly cycles. I decided to ask to do a review because I felt this would be a cool gift for my 11 year old daughter. I got a quick response saying they’d love to do it. My wife was actually shocked when she found out that I pitched this company and I was even thinking about this issue and change in life my daughter soon will be facing.
Now being a father who talks to his kids about pretty much everything I will be honest, I didn’t know how to approach my daughter about this subject so I figured this would be the proper way to do it. When the package arrived my wife and my daughter loved it. Everything was even better than I expected. It actually came at the perfect time! My daughter just started her period a few days earlier for the first time. The gift set came with thin maxi pads, liners, and delicate feminine wipes, a calendar to track her monthly cycle, the Period Book, nail polish, nail polish remover, and a nail file. To satisfy those chocolate cravings, Period Packs also include delicious PINK hot cocoa, and chocolate scented and flavored lip gloss. (Which was my daughter loved)
As you can it basically has everything she needs, also the Don’t Cramp My Style pouch, which she still carries around holds all the items they need whether they’re taking it to school or just going out anywhere. Another good thing about the pouch is that it snaps on either around your belt or your pants and small enough to fit into the pocket. She basically kept everything in the box because she loves the design and colors. She has read the book talking about what to expect and how it affects your body. I also urge all fathers out there to read this book to have a better understanding of what your daughter is going through or about to go through. I found this very educational and useful.
My wife said that she was very impressed with the package and wished that they had stuff like this when she was younger. As parents we feel that this is a must have for every girl. I will be recommending it to all the dads with daughters.
